When we read the Bible it is possible to think that missionary work ended with Paul. Have you heard of any other missionaries? Have you met any missionaries? Have you been on a missionary trip? If the teacher has been to a mission trip it will be wonderful to share with the children your experience.
In the past not everyone had received the good news of the love of Jesus. Jesus even today calls missionaries out of us. He used men like Hudson Taylor to take the good news to China, William Carey went to India, Dr. David Livingston to Africa. Today we still have people who have never heard about the love of Jesus. Across the world and even here in Kenya, there are people who have never heard about Jesus. The Bible Society of Kenya helps people to have the
Bible in their own language, every year they have the Run for the Bibleless to help them get the money needed to write the Bible in the different languages.
Here at ICC we have missionaries that come to our church to share and preach what God is doing in the mission field. Some come to worship with
us because they are missionaries here in Nairobi. Some of the missionaries from ICC are in Garissa, Mombasa, and many other places. God calls ordinary people like you and me who have chosen to obey Him and to partner with Him to share the good news. Pray for the courage to share the good news and also pray for the people who do not know Jesus yet that the good news will reach them quickly. Look for videos on these missionaries to share with the children.
Photos of different unreached people will help the children see the privilege they have in being able to meet and learn about God’s Word.
